perl -MDevel::Cover -MPath::Class::File -e'require Path::Class::File->new("Foo.pm")' Will keep grabbing RAM until your system dies painfully, with naught but a Deep recursion on subroutine "Path::Class::File::stringify" at -e line 1. (Note that the same code, without Devel::Cover loaded, will work Just Fine.)

FYI this is with at least perl 5.10.0 (debian/linux) and perl 5.8.8 (gentoo/linux), using D::C 0.64

Thanks very much for the report. With Path::Class 0.18, perl5.12.0-RC5 and the current development version of Devel::Cover I get the following: $ /usr/local/pkg/perl-5.12.0-RC5/bin/perl -Mblib -MDevel::Cover -MPath::Class::File -e 'require Path::Class::File->new("Foo.pm")' Devel::Cover: Can't find file "-e" (-e): ignored.

So I'll close this, but please reopen it if necessary. Thanks again,

For completeness, the difference here seems to be that there is success with the new coverage collection method of replacing ops. If I use the old method of replacing the runops loop then I get a segfault. So that's nice ;-)
